Major William Redmond MP (known as Willie Redmond), was one of the Irish Nationalist soldiers who fought side-by-side with Irish Unionist soldiers in the Battle of Messines Ridge on 7th June 1917. Hit by shrapnel, he was attended to by a Unionist soldier, Private John Meeke, who was himself wounded. Meeke received a Military Medal for his gallantry. Redmond was evacuated to the dressing station at Dranouter where he died of his wounds. He was buried in the grounds of the Catholic convent at Loker and, at the request of his widow, his body remained there. The site is now maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
